Dia Dhuit AshesRising. Top o' the morning after to ye.
It's conceivable that a case could be made for classifying the Medicine Buddha as Dead-related if you draw a positive correlation between the healing powers of the Medicine Buddha and the music of the Grateful Dead in terms of 'mystical elements'.

"The significance of the Medicine Buddha as the Supreme Healer in Tibetan medicine for liberating the individual from suffering is an exemplary metaphor for the mystical elements which are universally inherent in the healing tradition. The tradition is truly a holistic approach to the problem of suffering, both individual suffering and suffering as a universal condition."
- Lama Tashi Namgyal

"Music is the medicine of the mind" - John A. Logan

Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast" - William Congreve

Sorry I don't have time to find more apt quotes but maybe Artie Resnick and Rudy Clark had the Medicine Buddha in mind when they wrote 'Good Loving'...

"Well I was feelin' so bad
So I asked my Buddha Doctor 'bout what I had
I said now Doctor Doctor
Mister BD
Oh can you tell me
What's ailing me"

P.s. In the spirit of compassion for all sentient beings, I trust that Will and Rob's cat is now satisfactorily resuscitated...

Jerrob Hungar! I've been wonderin' when you were gonna appear.... "Good Lovin"" was almost the last song I ever heard during this lifetime [6/19/1980]...
